Blizzard’s World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic beta is now officially underway

Blizzard Entertainment released World of Warcraft Classic in August 2019, giving fans of the long-running MMORPG the opportunity to relive its original iteration. That was a success for the developer, as WoW Classic hit one million concurrent Twitch viewers on its first day of release, so it makes sense that its first expansion is also coming back via World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic this year.

Those of the lucky testers will find the client in the invitation and can download it directly from the desktop app. However, Blizzard warns against phishing emails. If you are not sure whether your invitation is real, log into your account and check whether a Burning Crusade Classic Beta license has been added to the account.

As of late March, Blizzard has yet to say when the WoW: Burning Crusade Classic beta will end. The finished expansion is due later in 2021, which likely means a length of a few months, at most. Duration is likely to vary based on how stable and balanced gameplay is, so the rockier the code, the more time it may take. Blizzard has also promised to respond to community feedback; a strong outcry could force time-consuming design changes.

If you’ve been selected to participate in the beta test, your account will already be flagged for access.

Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date.
Run the desktop app—it may need to update itself if you haven’t run it recently. If you don’t have the app installed, get started here.
Once is installed and updated, select World of Warcraft from the list of games.
In the Game Version drop-down menu above the Play button, choose the Burning Crusade (listed under In Development), then click Install.
Allow installation to complete, click Play and select any of the available Test Servers.
Create a new test character or copy over a character from your live WoW Classic account using the Copy Character button.
Enter the game and test the content.

Each World of Warcraft expansion changed the game in a number of ways, with The Burning Crusade adding content like new playable races, raising the level cap to 70, and introducing flying mounts. Whether or not Wrath of the Lich King Classic will follow suit is currently unknown, but it seems likely given the success of these classic servers thus far.

The Burning Crusade beta currently caps players at level 64, and Blizzard has disabled third-party add-ons and PvP content. Players who want to visit Outland but don’t have a level-58 character will be able to take advantage of a Character Boost service closer to launch. Once it exits testing, World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic will otherwise be free to everyone with a World of Warcraft subscription.
